The 'brave' gait of Astro TV, for example by lending decoder that later proved to be able to pick up a lot of customer interest, holds the exclusive rights to broadcast Premier League and creatively produces their own innovative local programs that carries Indonesian values, making Astro TV not only different and successfully penetrates the market rapidly, but also makes Pay TV increasingly popular among the people of Indonesia. Concerns about the implications of foreign ownership which can erode the national values, was apparently not proven. Astro TV as Pay TV that is 'away from Rating rezime' of terrestrial TV, it can freely produce local programs that promote national values through Astro Awani.
